同志亦凡人,真愛無性別!10首歌道盡同性戀的酸甜苦辣。【10 Great LGBT-Themed Songs】

Matt Nathanson – Modern Love

美國民謠創作歌手Matt Nathanson說:「人類應有選擇愛誰的自由,而且是不帶偏見的。婚姻平權是這般愛的延伸,如果時機到了,直到這件事在我們的文化不再是一個問題,modern love將會永遠都不嫌多。」(People deserve to be free to love who they choose, without prejudice. The right to marry is an extension of this love. Until the time comes when this is no longer an issue in our culture, modern love will never be enough.)

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis – Same Love ft. Mary Lambert

 

在今年的葛萊美獎頒獎典禮上,Macklemore, Ryan Lewis以及Mary Lambert的表演非常精彩,還找來數十位同性、異性伴侶於現場交換戒指,場面相當溫馨感人,流行天后瑪丹娜甚至到場聲援,最後也與Mary Lambert一同演唱了Same Love作結。

 

 

Demi Lovato – Really Don’t Care ft. Cher Lloyd

迪士尼小天后Demi Lovato日前於洛杉磯同志大遊行現場拍攝了這首聲援LGBT的歌曲MV。在影片開頭可見到許多恐同示威者的抗議標語,對此Demi的反應非常有智慧,她說:”You don’t have to hate, because my Jesus loves all!”

Demi曾在受訪時提及,原先這首歌是設定為分手歌,但她想要讓這首歌更加震撼人心,因此當她想到歌詞說”Really Don’t Care”,讓她聯想到霸凌,進而想到LGBT社群,常常得面對歧視與霸凌,但他(她)們依然能忠於自我,接受自己。

 

Hozier – Take Me To Church

愛爾蘭創作歌手Hozier這首”Take Me To Church”靈感來自於發生在俄羅斯的恐同暴力事件,歌詞中提到”I was born sick, but I love it / command me to be well / Amen. Amen. Amen.”,而MV中則有許多篤信上帝的蒙面社區自治維安隊員,當他們發現同性戀者時,隨即前往家中抓走這些人,以上帝之名,對這些同性戀者施加諸多暴行。Hozier說,他並不是在針對某方面大做文章,他只是想忠實呈現這些的確在俄羅斯發生過的事情。

Villagers – Occupy Your Mind

這首歌是愛爾蘭獨立民謠樂團Villagers針對俄羅斯的反同性戀法案,特地於冬季奧運開幕前推出這首聲援LGBT的歌曲,並發表如下聲明: “In the advent of the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, please find attached a song written for you, your mother, your father and your gay brothers and sisters in Russia. ”

Well there’s a crack in the ceiling
And there’s a hole in the sky
And there’s a government warning
They don’t like our kind
But now it’s three in the morning
And I’m feeling just fine
And I just want to occupy your mind

Sara Bareilles – Brave

Maybe there’s a way out of the cage where you live
Maybe one of these days you can let the light in
Show me how big your brave is

Say what you wanna say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave
With what you want to say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

Third Eye Blind – Jumper

美國另類搖滾樂團Third Eye Blind主唱Stephan Jenkins說,這首”Jumper”的靈感來自於樂團經理告訴他們的一個悲傷的故事,有一位他認識的高中男孩是同性戀,他在San Diego的一所校風保守的學校上學,所有同學幾乎都是軍人子弟,因此同性戀的身份絕對是不被容許的,最後男孩從橋上一躍而下…。像是在對那位男孩喊話,歌詞中提到”I wish you would step back from that ledge my friend”,對於欲尋死之人,主唱Stephan以同理心的態度勸說:”And if you do not want to see me again, I would understand.”

The angry boy a bit too insane
Icing over a secret pain
You know you don’t belong
You’re the first to fight
You’re way too loud
You’re the flash of light on a burial shroud
I know something’s wrong

Well everyone I know has got a reason
To say put the past away
I wish you would step back
From that ledge my friend
You could cut ties with all the lies
That you’ve been living in
And if you do not want to see me again
I would understand, I would understand
Well he’s on the table and he’s gone to code
And I do not think anyone knows
What they’re doing here
And your friends have left you
You’ve been dismissed
I never thought it would come to this
And I, I want you to know
Everyone’s got to face down the demons
Maybe today
You could put the past away
I wish you would step back from
That ledge my friend
You could cut ties with all the lies
That you’ve been living in
And if you do not want to see me again
I would understand, I would understand
I would understand, I would understand
I would understand, I would understand
Can you put the past away?

Lady Gaga – Born This Way

No matter gay, straight, or bi,
Lesbian, transgendered life,
I’m on the right track baby,
I was born to survive.
No matter black, white or beige
Chola or orient made,
I’m on the right track baby,
I was born to be brave.I was born this way hey!

Christina Aguilera – Beautiful

I am beautiful no matter what they say.
Words can’t bring me down.
I am beautiful in every single way.
Yes, words can’t bring me down… Oh no.
So don’t you bring me down today.
